4:45pm – Pete Johansson: Pete Jo-Handsome Comes Alive

>RESERVE YOUR £5 TICKET HERE<

AS SEEN ON YOU MIGHT ALSO ENJOY PETE JOHANSSON (HIS OWN COMEDY SPECIAL ON NETFLIX)

AND RUSSELL HOWARD’S GOOD NEWS

PETE JO-HANDSOME COMES ALIVE! is a comic tour de force of a man battling the overwhelming powers of distraction, meaninglessness of life, and biological imperatives to fulfill the expectations of a life perceived as successful.  A taking stock of what it really takes to do well, and realizing maybe, just maybe this holographic simulation we call life doesn’t need to be done well at all… or maybe it really, really does.  There’s no real answers but there are a surprising amount of funny hypotheticals that might make you put down your phone for two f*cking seconds.

A former resident of Vancouver, Canada, Pete made his first forays into Hollywood after a wildly successful debut at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal.  Soon after moving to the UK, Pete became a favourite at the world famous Comedy Store and appeared on Radio 4’s Loose Ends.

 His hit solo Edinburgh show Naked Pictures of My Life garnered rave reviews and also bagged him a nomination for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards. He has since returned to Edinburgh with Pete’s On Earth (2010), Utopian Crack Pipe (2012), Several Jokes (2014), Just Google Me (2015) and Good People (2016).

 Pete headlines comedy clubs around the world, regularly performing in New York and London as well as shows in Dubai, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Afghanistan, Guam, Cayman Islands, Germany, Malta, Cyprus, Amsterdam, Ireland and Canada, and a whole bunch more.

 Pete is no stranger to Canadian television, having appeared on Just for Laughs Galas (CBC), Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, Comedy Central’s Remix, and National Lampoon’s Funny Money (GSN) to name a few. In the UK he’s appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3), Comedy Central’s Live at the Comedy Store and Best of the Fest (Channel 4).

 CRITICS’ CHOICE: The Guardian, Daily Telegraph, The Independent, Scotland On Sunday, Sunday Herald, The List, The Scotsman, Three Weeks, Such Small Portions, Broadway Baby & All The Festivals
